Muslim Outreach anybody? Flying carpet technology? Appreciation of the Zero year? The last might be appropriate because that's what's going to be accomplished - Zero.

Decades ago, it was obvious to NASA that the best & most efficient science was best performed by unmanned spacecraft. However, to excite the gov't funders & the public, ya had to kill some astronauts once in a while.
NASA got fed up with a public & know-nothing legislators, who wouldn't get involved with spectacular science performed by superlatively designed excellent spacecraft, without 'bodies with the right stuff', along for the ride.
Note: the ones complaining about NASA are the ones 'with the right stuff', but not the scientists. The scientists are involved in the obscure but spectacularly performing & long enduring missions that pour out so much science, that Earth Base often only have time & money to store the data, but NOT do real science with it.
